Ceremony Of The Night is the official audio from the album Verferum by Quercus from the Czech Republic. The music is with very good vocal, and it`s an epic funeral doom. The band is from the town Pilsen, and pils in Norwegian is beer in English. Despite this, Quercus makes a very soberly and fascinating music. Quercus started up in 2001.
Verferum is an ode to what seems to be never-ending and reveals itself to be short and finite. Memento mori. Quercus take funeral doom as a rite. It is a nice shrine in a mysterious wild nature which we enter with sacred fear. The church organ is an instrument of celebration of the moments like this. Organ as a brutal mass bearing the guitar and vocal compositions, organ as an ethereal sigh, distant chants. Sharpened senses. Hope. Waiting. Atonement.
Quercus pay homage to J. S. Bach. His immortal work was our great inspiration, especially Prelude & Fugue C minor BWV546 and Passacaglia C minor BWV582. The album is to be listened loud.
